The Valuation Office is conducting a revaluation of all commercial properties throughout County Kilkenny to come into effect for the year 2018 as part of its ongoing programme to revalue all such properties within the State.

A new Valuation List for Kilkenny County Council Rating Authority Area will be published on 15th September 2017. From that date you can go online to www.valoff.ie and view the valuations of all of the properties that were revalued in your local authority area.

The Valuation (Net Annual Value) of the property is multiplied by the “Annual Rate on Valuation” (ARV) to calculate the indicative amount of commercial rates payable for 2018. Ratepayers in County Kilkenny can calculate their estimated rates liability for 2018 by using the indicative ARV set out above.

The ARV is determined by Kilkenny County Council as part of the budgetary process each year.

The Indicative ARV for County Kilkenny for 2018 is 0.21

To calculate the indicative commercial rates liability for 2018 please multiply the “Proposed Valuation” (Net Annual Value), as advised by the Valuation Office, by 0.21

Example 1

Peter O Brien (fictional business) - Proposed Valuation as advised = €15,800
Estimated Rates Liability for 2018 = €15,800 * 0.21 = €3,3318

Example 2

Mary Murphy (fictional business) - Proposed Valuation as advised = €25,000
Estimated Rates Liability for 2018 = €25,000 * 0.21 = €5,250

Alternatively an estimate of your rates liability for 2018 can be computed using the calculator at the bottom of this page and inputting the valuation set out in the Proposed Valuation Certificate to calculate next year's indicative rate and also by inputting your rate bill for 2017 you will be able to calculate any difference in amounts payable.

It should be noted that the Annual Rate on Valuation is indicative only. It is based on the total value of proposed valuations for Kilkenny as calculated and advised by the Valuation Office and may be subject to change, at the conclusion of the revaluation process and at the Council’s budget meeting for 2018 scheduled for November this year
